The Center For Fine Art Photography

Due: December 30, 2015
International Call for Entries | FAUX
Juror Louise Clements

International Juried Exhibition : Theme: Faux

Fake wood, plastic surgery and imitation cheese, the world around us is staged with facades. We are surrounded by stand in’s for the original, fabricated neighborhoods with identical houses and plastic rocks. Knock off designer goods and mass production meet our consumer demand and people find real comfort in artificial companionship. It is becoming rare to find a genuine person place or thing and the word authentic has been used so often, it no longer means anything. All artist interpretations on this theme are encouraged. All photographic processes are welcome.

Louise Clements is Artistic Director of QUAD, a centre for contemporary art, film and new technologies in Derby UK, since 2001, and Artistic Director of FORMAT International Photography Festival since 2004.
